Student Achievements - Edition 17 - 2021

Congratulations to the following students on their achievements...

Lily Laan (Year 7 Clark) had a wonderful week at the SA Stage Dancing Society Eisteddfod during the recent school holidays. It's the biggest dance competition in SA for the year with some incredible performers. Lily performed with her troupe and they smashed it, coming 1st in all six of their performances!

With her solos, this comp was especially challenging for Lily this year as she was entered into open categories. Her results were great:

  • 2nd for Musical Theatre
  • 3rd for Jazz
  • 3rd for Contemporary
  • Honourable Mention for Classical

Congratulations to Reese Johnston (Year 7 Forder) who has been selected in the U14 State Development Squad for soccer.

Athletics SA hosted the VIVA SA All Schools Games over the weekend, which saw almost 400 middle and high school-aged students compete across 24 athletics disciplines. Several State and National records fell throughout the two-day competition, which included Athletics SA Emerging Athlete Program member Angus Hincksman (Year 10 Woollacott) smashing the National Men’s U17 T38 800m record by 5.5 seconds. Angus ran a 2:02.95 800m on Sunday afternoon, which also broke the T38 U20 National record.

On Thursday, at the Australian Girls Choir leadership awards and presentations, Ella Burgess (Year 8 Forder) was presented with the Team Spirit award for commitment to her performing choir team and positive role modelling. It is a great achievement, particularly as this was peer-voted by the performing choir leaders.
